I bought a bag of Falklands top when I first started spinning: it was glorious stuff, lovely and soft.

If memory serves, I used it for the foot portion of the knee-high entrelac socks I made, with the cuff portion being all the little skeins I spun up from my British wool sampler kit I bought at Little Barn my second MSWF.

Don't recall seeing much since though -- I should probably keep an eye out.... :-)

Deb Robson

Mine was from Louet, which means it may be findable without too much trouble.

L.M. Cunningham

Mine probably was as well, now that I think about where it was purchased. :-)

(And I meant to thank you for the shout-out on the hockey Michael Ryder, even though he now plays for Boston and not my beloved Canadiens. I'll be working on "the experiment" while I watch Game 7 tonight.)

Deb Robson

Linda, I thought you might be amused by the Michael Ryder connections. I discovered them long ago when I was looking for more publications by the wool-expert Michael Ryder.


Thank you for taking the time to share. I'm eagerly awaiting my preordered copy of you book (from Barnes and Noble), and tidbits of information like this just make me hope it ships soon.

L.M. Cunningham

LOL Yeah, it's not like they're hard to tell apart. :-)


Thanks for reminding me of yet another 2 lbs. of top in my stash. Bought mine from Rosemary at DHF when they were still shipping from the Falklands. (yikes, just looked and they quit shipping '02!) My plan was to spin and knit my own Aran sweater.

Must start spinning a little every day again....or will need a Rumplestitskin!
